    Re: Need help!!

    Hello. We’re sorry to hear about everything you’ve been having to cope with. It can’t be easy to have been moved from MI to TN. can’t. It’s great to hear that your friend and his mom are so supportive of you and are trying to help you in your time of crisis.

    You certainly don’t deserve to be kicked out because of your sexuality. Everyone deserves a safe place to call home. Your mom not providing you with a safe place could be considered neglect and if reporting your mom’s behavior could be something to look into. You deserve to have access to those important documents as you need then to enroll in school, receive medical care, and many other things that you deserve to have. Would there be any chance you or your friend’s mom could reach out to your uncle to see if he has access to your records? It doesn’t necessarily have to be a birth certificate and you can find more information at You might also consider contacting legal services to see what options you have.
